  • S Pen comes with a finer tip and supports 4,096 levels of pressure

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will get unveiled this week, but with all the rumours that have been surfacing on the Web, we probably know what to expect from the smartphone. Besides all the leaks, the Galaxy Note 9 has also been showcased in several teasers released by Samsung itself. However, leaks are still pouring in tipping the expected specifications and features of the upcoming handset. A recent leak has suggested that the Galaxy Note 9 will have AI-based features. Samsung will also reportedly give early Galaxy Note 9 buyers a choice between the AKG Y50 Bluetooth wireless headphones and 15000 Fortnite V-Bucks. Additionally, a leak has also suggested the features of the S Pen stylus that will reportedly also be sold standalone by Samsung.

As per a post by a tipster on Reddit, citing an unnamed Samsung trainer, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will come with AI-based features that will be able to optimise the camera based on the subject detected, such as landscape, portrait, food, and more. The new camera is also said to have speech bubbles that pop out if it detects an image having any imperfections such as “blurriness, eyes blinking, and hand shaking too much.”

According to the Reddit user, pre-order offers on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 include wireless noise-cancelling headphones from AKG worth $299 or the Fortnite package. Also, buyers would be given the option to get both if they pay $100, the user added. This piece of information has been reaffirmed by an image of Galaxy Note 9 Value Pack retail box shared by Dutch site Techtastic. The retail box includes the AKG headphones along with a car mount.

The leaks suggest that the S Pen stylus in Galaxy Note 9 will let users double tap a button to flip camera mode via by doubling as a remote shutter. Also, the S Pen will be able to deliver up to 30 minutes of use by charging for just 40 seconds. Also, the leak suggests that S Pen will come in different colour options and Samsung will separately sell different colour styli. However, there is no information on the pricing. The colour of the stylus is also said to determine the colour of the on-screen memo font.

Also, when it comes to Samsung Dex, the Galaxy Note 9 will reportedly be able to enter Dex mode without a dock, just by using a USB Type-C to HDMI cable. The display of the Galaxy Note 9 will be 6.4-inch but the footprint of the smartphone will remain the same as the Galaxy Note 8, the Reddit user added.

Meanwhile, a new report has hinted at the features of the S Pen stylus that will arrive with the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. As per a WinFuture report, the S Pen will get Bluetooth support, a feature that has been suggested in leaks multiple times. The report says that the button at the top of the stylus can now be used for the first time as a remote control for the smartphone. The report claims that the S Pen can be used to trigger images, remotely control presentations, or even operate other apps without having to touch the handset itself. The images leaked in the report suggest that the stylus comes with a finer tip and now supports 4,096 levels of pressure for a very precise control over your drawings or hand-written messages.

LG’s Latest Budget-Priced Smartphone Includes Nano Coated Tip Stylus Pen

LG will be introducing the latest version of its flagship smartphone at the upcoming Mobile World Congress conference this week. At the event, the South Korean company will show off the new LG5, but fans of stylus devices will be more interested in the 5.7-inch phablet LG Stylus 2.

Currently there is one phone that dominates the stylus segment on mobile, the Samsung Galaxy Note. But other players are introducing their own versions, including LG and Huawei.

The LG Stylus 2 is a follow up to the G4 Stylus, which launched in May of last year to lukewarm receptions. The company made several improvements on the Stylus 2, including a new nano-coated pen for greater accuracy, which is replacing the Rubberdium Stylus of the G4.

While LG has upgraded the RAM from 1GB to 1.5GB and installed more powerful rear and front cameras with 13- and 8-megapixel respectively, the company is most proud of the new stylus, which it calls a pen.

The stylus/pen is becoming a valuable tool for many power users and creative types that own phablets, and the more accurate it is, the better LG can use it as a selling point.

Of course, typing on a phablet is not convenient, but if there is one thing the Galaxy Note has proven, it’s the existence of a large customer base that loves to use a stylus. Small business owners in design, landscaping, architecture, real estate, decorating and more have grown to appreciate the conveniences a stylus offers.

The improvement on the LG Stylus 2 extends to features that are designed specifically for the pen. When you take the pen out from the compartment, it triggers Pen Pop, a shortcut menu for the Pop Memo and Pop Scanner applications. So all you have to do is take the pen out and you can start writing, drawing or just doodling.

Another nifty feature is basically an alarm for your pen. If the phone detects the pen container is empty, an app called Pen Keeper will sound an alert on your phone.

“LG Stylus 2 provides both the big screen and premium notetaking functions of a premium large phone at a price of a mid-tier phone,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. This means you shouldn’t expect specs that match the Galaxy Note 5, but an affordable alternative.
